Eighteen Juniors 



♦Partial Course; S, Secretarial Course; P, Physical Course; E, Educa- 
tional Course 



OBJECT 



This School aims to equip young men for the offices of Gen- 
eral Secretary, Physical Director and Educational Director in the 
the Young Men's Christian Association. Christian young men 
desiring to fit themselves for the directorship of college gymna- 
siums are also admitted. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH 

The rapid extension of the Association movement between 
1870 and 1880, the erection of large buildings, and the marked 
increase in the size of individual Associations created a demand for 
trained men. 

In connection with this growing demand for men there has 
been a corresponding advance in the requirements. 

Another important development is the call which has come 
from foreign lands. Secretaries of the Associations in Paris, 
Koine, Basil and other fields, on the continent of Europe 
have been trained at this School. 

It was in response to such appeals that this institution was 
founded by Rev. David Allen Peed, in Springfield, Mass., in 
1885, in connection with the School for Christian Workers. In 
1887 the department for physical training, which has prepared 
a large proportion of the physical directors now in the work, was 
established. In 1890, as the result of a demand from the Asso- 
ciations, the institution was separately incorporated as the Inter- 
national Young Men's Christian Association Training School. 
The following year a desirable property, consisting of thirtv 
acres of ground, bordering on Massasoit Lake, was purchased, and 
after an heroic effort funds were secured for a model gymnasium 
and athletic field. The pressing need of a dormitory and recita- 
tion hall was satisfied by the erection of the present attractive 
headquarters of the institution in 1895, giving the School a prop- 
erty valued at $100,000. 

Along with this external development there has been a less 
public but even more important internal evolution. A carefully 



12 



shaped curriculum, extending over three years course of study 
and a competent faculty of specialists is the result. 

In 1896 a committee of the trustees revised and unified the 
work of the institution. 



POLICY 

There are two conceptions of a technical school. One, that 
the instructors should he men who, though devoting their chief 
energy to the work of their profession, are willing to take part 
of their time to meet students and direct their study. This 
method of imparting instruction was formerly almost universal. 
It has been as generally abandoned. In the trades, it was called 
the apprentice system. Young men were bound out to master 
workmen of varying degrees of ability, who taught them simply 
to do as their fathers had done. This has been succeeded in 
Europe, and more recently in America, by the trades schools and 
industrial institutes, which not only teach better, but are con- 
stantly leading in improved methods of work. In the professions 
the development has been almost parallel. Formerly a student 
of law, medicine, or divinity was placed under the charge of a 
member of the profession he was seeking to enter. The lawyer 
directed the reading of the law student, took him to court, and 
otherwise guided his work. But this method of professional 
preparation has been ahandoned in Europe, and is fast passing 
here. It has been found that preparation for a life work is of 
such vital moment that it cannot be left to the casual hours of men 
who give their chief thought and energy elsewhere. 

But more important than this, the most successful schools 
are those which devote the greatest care to fundamental studies 
and principles, and only give actual work sufficient to illustrate 
these principles and secure the necessary skill. A man will have 
opportunity to gain experience all his life, but he is not likely to 
master the principles of his calling after entering upon it. 
Actual experience gives precedents, rather than guiding 
principles. This higher conception of a technical institution is 
an historical development. 

/ 



L3 



The technical and professional schools to-day aim also, both to 
train men and to advance the particular calling of which they 
are a part. 

The Training School is built upon such a conception, and 
its history has already shown the wisdom of this policy. Tts 
leadership in physical education, and its contribution to associ- 
ation literature and methods have given it a prominent place. In 
its early days, the trustees were compelled to employ men who 




MASSASOIT LAKE 



gave only part of their time to teaching. It has greatly increased 
the efficiency of the School to have a faculty of specialists who 
devote their whole endeavor to its interests. 

EQUIPMENT 

The Dormitory building, which at present is used also for 
recitations, library, and offices, is an attractive four-story brick 
structure, overlooking Massasoit Lake. The first floor contains 



tlie lecture hall, the parlor, known as the "Jubilee Room," the 
reading room, library and offices. 

The three upper floors contain two class rooms, sleeping- 
rooms for sixty-four students, and on the fourth floor a dining 
hall and kitchen. Each floor is provided with lavatories and 
baths. In the basement there are large rooms for chemical, phys- 
ical and physiological laboratories, a bicycle room and store room, 
besides the furnace and engine rooms. 

The School possesses a model gymnasium for physical train- 
ing, with a floor 48 x 74, free from posts, having the usual appa- 
ratus, and in addition, Swedish boms, hand ball court, class 




ATHLETIC FIELD 

climbing ropes, seven needle baths with hot and cold water, 
lockers 18 x 18 x 48 inches with combination locks, class rooms 
and examining rooms. 

The athletic grounds cover six acres, with ball field, quarter- 
mile running and bicycle track, tennis courts, etc. 

Through the courtesy of the Secretary of War, the School 
now has the privilege of the use of Massasoit Lake for aquatics. 
The School possesses a flue fleet of boats, which are admirably 
adapted for this purpose. 

Workshops for industrial training, consisting of a pattern 
making room, forging room or blacksmith shop, machine room, 
and engine room, have been fitted up in the basement of ti e 
gymnasium building.

The School library contains 3000 books and over 4,200 pam- 
phlets, the latter being one of the best collections of the publica- 
tions of the Young Men's Christian Association and kindred 
organizations to be found. Through the efforts of one of the 
Faculty during the past twelve years, an unequalled collection 
of works on Physical Training has been secured for the School. 
The reference library is open to the students at all times, and the 
lending section from 9 a. m. to 6 p. m. The reading room, always 
open, has on file two dailies, seventeen weeklies, fifty-one month- 
lies, and three quarterlies. 

In addition, the students have access to the Bowne Histori- 
cal Library, the largest collection of books, pamphlets and manu- 
scripts bearing on work for young men in existence ; also to the 
Springfield Public Library of 101,000 volumes, now ranking the 
eighth among the great circulating libraries of this country. 

The School stands for the most thorough practical, as well 
as theoretical training. The opportunities for participating in 
the various phases of work for young men are abundant. The 
Holyoke Association, within easy reach of the School, has one of 
the most successful works in a manufacturing community of 
45,000 people. The Central Association at Springfield has a 
splendidly equipped building with all modern facilities. Several 
Associations in smaller towns can be reached in a short time by 
electric connections.

THE CURRICULUM. 



The curriculum falls into two divisions: 1. The General Course, embrac- 
ing studies which underlie the work of an Association officer, and which are 
pursued by all students. 2. The Technical Courses, which give the knowledge 
and training for the particular department of work which the student expects 
to enter. 



L GENERAL COURSE. 

This course, which forms the foundation of the curriculum, seeks to fit 
students to be leaders in spiritual work. It seeks to train each student to lead 
young men to Jesus Christ, and to teach the Bible. It aims to acquaint him 
with the Young Men's Christian Association and its field. It also seeks to 
broaden his intellectual horizon, to promote mental discipline, and to famil- 
iarize him with the problems which a leader in Christian work will meet in 
practical life. It falls into five divisions : 1. Biblical Course. 2. Historical 
Course. 3. Psychology. 4. Course in English and Vocal Music. 5. Con- 
ventions and Lectures. 6. Graduate Course. Attention is called to the fact 
that the Institution now offers graduate work in all departments. One stu- 
dent has during the past year completed the Graduate Physical Course and 
several have been accepted for the coming year. 



J. BIBLICAL COURSE. 

(1) The Bible. (Dr. Ballantine, Middle and Senior years, five hours per 
week.) An essential of spiritual leadership is a knowledge of the Scriptures. 
This is fundamental in the preparation for any position in the Associations. 
It is the aim of the institution that every student who enters its ranks shall 
gain a knowledge of the Bible, and it is believed that the course here offered 
will prove attractive, not only to men who are preparing, but to men already 
in the service who may desire a course of special Bible study. Two years are 
devoted to a study of the text, one being given to the Old Testament and one 
to the New Testament. The student is expected to read each book in accord- 
ance with the directions of the instructor, to recite upon its facts and ideas in 
the class room, and to take notes of familiar lectures upon it. There are no 
formal lectures upon Biblical introduction and theology, but the topics com- 
monly treated under those heads are incidently brought to the student's 
attention while he is engaged upon the several books inductively. By the 
method used, the student gains from his own investigations a direct and 
comprehensive knowledge of each book in the Bible and of each Testament as 
a whole. The main outlines of the progress of Hebrew civilization and 



20 



history, and of divine revelation, are fixed in his mind. He attains a knowl- 
edge not of proof texts, but of connected series of events and inspired argu- 
ments and chains of thought. In the unity of a total impression, the strength 
of every part is assured. 

In this way not only are the contents of Scripture mastered, but the mind 
is trained in the preparation of Gospel addresses, etc., and the inner spiritual 
life is quickened through the truth. It will be readily seen that this course 
does not aim to give courses that can be reproduced in the local associations, 
but to give a comprehensive study of the entire body of the Scriptures, which 
will enable the student to lay out courses himself as may be necessary. 

(2) The Training Classes. (Dr. Doggett, Junior and Senior years, one hour 
per week. Dr. Seerley, Middle year, one hour per week.) These classes have 
an intimate relation to the practical Christian work of the students during 
their entire course. The Junior and Middle years are devoted to the study of 
methods for dealing with individuals. The great questions of regeneration 
and the use of the Bible with the unsaved form the subject matter of this 
study. In the Senior year this hour is devoted to the study of the use of the 
Bible in public. Attention is given to the preparation of Gospel addresses, 
Bible studies and the best methods of teaching Bible classes. 



2. HISTORICAL COURSE. 

(1) The History of Christianity and Christian Civilization. (Mr. Burr, Junior 
year, five hours per week.) It is the aim of this course to familiarize the 
student with the great movements in the development of Christianity and 
Christian civilization. The first term is devoted to the study of early and 
medieval Christianity, the second term to the Reformation and the Protestant 
movement in Europe, and the third term to the movement in America and the 
history of missions. 

The work is carried on by lectures, carefully prepared courses of reading, 
and text books for special periods and topics. Special emphasis is laid on the 
courses of reading and topical study, so that the student becomes familiar with 
the masterpieces of historical literature. Recent additions to the department 
of history in the School library will facilitate the work very much. 

Students are expected to own " The History of the Christian Church," by 
Prof. Fisher. 

(2) Association History. (Dr. Doggett, Middle year, three hours per week.) 
The aim of this course is to acquaint all students with the history and develop- 
ment of this great movement. Careful attention is given to the forces in the 
church, and the conditions of social life which made such a movement neces- 
sary. The association is studied, not as a local or national, but as a world-wide 
endeavor. In the first period, 1844 to 1855, especial attention is given to the 
London work and its formative influence. In the second period, 1855 to 1878, 
recognition of the leadership of the American work requires especial attention 
to the movement on this continent. In the third period, 1878 to 1897, more 
attention is given to the spread of the movement throughout the world. This 
course studies the development of the Association, its organization and polity, 
and the fixed principles which govern its operation and its relation to the 
church.

3. PSYCHOLOGY. 

(2) Psychology. (Dr. Seerley, Middle year, two terms, five hours per 
week.) This course immediately follows physiology and is a study of the 
intellectual man, keeping strictly in mind the relations to other phases of 
activity, both physical and spiritual. 

The subject is considered under four heads : 

(a) The physical basis of mind. 

(b) The conditions for effective mental activity. 

(c) The faculties of mind. 

(d) The operations of mind. 

The first comprises a study of the brain and its functions, the organs of 
special sense, sensation, habit, and such other subjects as properly belong 
under physiological psychology. Much that is often considered under the 
title of personal purity and allied subjects is considered under this head. 

The second head comprises a study of consciousness, attention and habit, 
and an attempt is made to present them in away most practical to students 
engaged in the study of young men. 

" Under the " faculties of mind " are studied the intellect, sensibilities and 
will, with an endeavor to discover the laws underlying the growth and develop- 
ment of the mind. This is likewise presented in a practical way, aiming to 
discover how character is built, first, for the student's own good, and second, 
to equip him with knowledge essential to leadership. 

The fourth head includes the operations of acquisition, or the acquiring 
of knowledge, with the processes of assimilation, or the making over of the 
acquired material, depositing it as a part of one's own character, and the 
reproduction or the expression of the character to others. 

4. COURSE IN ENGLISH AND VOCAL MUSIC. 

(1) English. (Mr. Regal, Junior year, five hours per week.) The ability 
to use the English language is of the utmost importance. Few men achieve 
such excellence in English but that they covet the opportunity for further 
study. Throughout the course students are required to present papers and 
essays in different branches, which are revised and criticised by instructors. 
In the Junior year, three hours weekly is given to the study of English and 
models of English literature, and two hours weekly to composition. 

Particular attention is given to public speaking in connection with the 
Literary Society, under the leadership of one of the members of the Faculty. 
All Middlers and Seniors are expected to participate. The Literary Society 
meets on alternate weeks through the year. 

(2) Vocal Music. One hour per week in the Junior year is given to chorus 
work under a competent director. This course aims: (a) To acquaint the 
student with the gospel music which has been adapted to male voices, (b) To 
teach how to sing this music, (c) To teach the reading of easy music, (d) To 
fit the student for leading the music at a men's gospel meeting. 

5. CONVENTIONS AND LECTURES. 

(1) Conventions. The School aims, through conventions and conferences, to 
bring the students into touch with the current affairs of the association. Dur- 
ing the past year, at the invitation of the Massachusetts State Committee, the 



22 



School attended in a body the State Convention held at Lynn. During March 
the New England Secretaries' Conference held its session for three days at the 
School Dormitory, affording the students an opportunity to come into close 
touch with association life. The Conference has accepted the invitation of 
the trustees to hold its meeting for 1900 also at the School. 

(2) Lectures. One of the most helpful means of bringing the students into 
touch with the active work of the association is found in the lectures which 
from time to time are given by association leaders and others. During the 
past year among others the following have been delivered: S. M. Safford, 
Boston, "The Higher Life;" Ed. F. See, Brooklyn, "The Inspirational and 
the Mechanical Employee;" L. W. Messer, Chicago, "New Methods of 
Religious Work;" J. W. Cook, Bridgeport, " The Bible Study Department;" 
Dr. Ph. S. Moxom, Springfield, "Specialization and a Literal Training;" 
J. F. Moore, New York, " The Railroad Department " 



6. GRADUATE WORK. 

Graduates of the School, or those having done an equivalent elsewhere, 
will be allowed to pursue advanced work under one of the instructors. The 
aim shall be in each case to do work of an original character. This work shall 
be embodied in a thesis which shall be the property of the School. 



II. TECHNICAL COURSES. 

During the Junior year students pursue chiefly the general course, but 
from that time on, while a part of the time of each day is occupied with the 
general course, an increasing proportion of the students' time is put into 
special technical study in the departments to which they intend to devote 
their lives. 



U THE SECRETARIAL AND EDUCATIONAL COURSE. 

This course is the result of over fourteen years of experience and testing. 
It is adapted to teach the student both the science and the art of the secre- 
taryship and the educational directorship. Much of its success depends upon 
the personal of its faculty, but the following outline is suggestive. 



U PHYSIOLOGY. 

This course is arranged in recognition of the unity of man's threefold 
nature, with the conviction that the religion of Jesus Christ is adapted to 
redeem man in his entirety — body, mind and spirit. 

(1) Physiology. (Dr. Seerley, Junior year, five hours per week.) This 
study begins with a course of lectures, calculated to show man's place in the 
universe, including the unorganized and organized world, and to put him into 
relation with these. 



23 



A study of the body is then begun with the most simple analysis into 
trunk, limbs, head, and all that can be readily observed. 

This naturally leads to the study of the mechanics of the body. Then, by 
means of dissection of animals in the laboratory, we discover the different 
systems making up the body (muscular, osseous, nervous, etc.), and the organs 
associated in forming the apparatuses (circulatory, digestive, respiratory, 
reproductive, etc.). 

The student then picks out the muscles and names them, assisted by 
charts, demonstrations and experiments; the bones, naming and classifying 
them, aided by the skeleton. Bone, muscle, nerve, etc., are then studied as 
regards function, structure and relations. 

In the same way every organ composing the several apparatuses is 
minutely studied till a complete analysis results. 

He then collects and combines all the physiological properties possessed 
by all the tissues, and discovers that the original cell, from which developed 
this complex structure by the process of differentiation, possessed all these 
powers. 

A study of the growth and development of the body then naturally follows. 
Careful study is then given to the external and internal conditions which 
tend to promote health in this complex structure, as well as the best thing to 
do in case an injury should occur to any part of it.

was prepared primarily for the use of this School. 

3. SEMINARY WORK. 

(Dr. Doggett, Senior year.) The object of this course is to study at 
first hand the documentary sources of the Young Men's Christian Association, 
and to learn the art of original investigation. A rich and unworked field is 
presented to the student in the many undeveloped themes in association his- 
tory and by its unsolved problems. During the Middle year students in the 
secretarial and educational courses study themes akin to their departments. 
In the Senior year a thesis is prepared upon a theme agreed upon by the 
student and instructor. 

Students in the seminary meet weekly for a two-hours' session in the 
class room, and are expected to devote two hours daily during the Senior 
year to research. The historical and physical libraries available to students 
make this work of great value. 

Students who desire to prepare a thesis upon a theme in the Bible or in 
sociology, will be permitted to do so. 

4. SOCIOLOGY. 

(Mr. Burr. Senior year, two terms, five hours per week.) The aim of the 
course is to familiarize the student with the most serious economic and 
social problems which he will meet in his work, and the fundamental 
economic and social laws which must be recognized in all reform 
movements. 

The first term will be devoted to Economic Instruction, and the study 
of social economic problems such as, " Social and Economic Inequality," 
"The Labor Problem," "Characteristics of Modern Industry and Com- 
merce," " Industrial Combinations," " Industrial Control," "Individualism 
vs. Socialism," etc. 

The second and third terms will be devoted to Sociology proper, and to a 
study of the constitution of society, of social laws and forces, and social 
ideals. Especial emphasis is laid on the relation of the family to the social 
organism, and to the law of association. 

Field Work in Sociology. Four hours a week during the first two terms of 
the senior year will be devoted to special study of the social and religious life 
of the young men of Springfield. The " Leisure Time of the Young Men " will 
be the special topic for this year. A careful investigation will be made of 
various recreative occupations. Each student will take a special line of 
investigation, the results of which will be preserved in permanent form. 

5. ETHICS. 

(Senior year, one term, five hours per week.) "Moral Science," by Prof. 
Fairchild, will be used as a text book. The subject will be taken up from the 
standpoint of modern psychology. 



26 



6. PEDAGOGY. 

(Dr, Seerley, Middle year, one term, five hours per week.) Here study is 
given to the curves which show the relative development of the acquisitive, 
the assimilative, and the expressive powers at different ages; those showing 
relative emphasis on the work to be done, and those showing relative empha- 
sis in instructing, developing and training the mind. 

The student thus arrives at the principles of method, which form the 
basis for applied pedagogy in the different courses. 



7. PRACTICE. 

Unusual opportunities are offered for the practical work, and for getting 
an inside view of association management. The Holyoke and Springfield 
Associations, with their beautiful buildings and large memberships, furnish 
every facility to see and participate in the various phases of association 
work. Through the Student Association, this activity has been developed 
into a three years'graded course. One of the most helpful experiences of the 
past year was a four days' tour by the Seniors of the associations at New 
Haven, Bridgeport, Brooklyn, New York City, and the offices of the State 
and International Committees at New York. By pre-arrangement, from one- 
half hour to an hour was spent with the man in charge of each of .the 
departments visited. Eleven associations were studied, and addresses and 
papers given to the class by fifty-three different association employees. 

All are given practice in using the library; in preparing reports of com- 
mittees, minutes of meetings, items for newspapers and bulletins, printers' 
copy and proof reading, and are expected to attend each year at least two 
association conventions. 

Frequent delegations of students are assigned to conduct services for 
young men in neighboring towns and villages. 

Physical Training. Every secretary is given a thorough course in physical 
training. A complete description of this course is given on pages (28) and (30). 

Organization of the Physical Departmerit. See page (31). 



8. EDUCATIONAL COURSE. 

Opportunity will be given students, who wish to fit themselves as Edu- 
cational Directors, to make a special study of this field. In connection with 
the seminary, thesis work will be given upon themes allied to this depart- 
ment. A course of lectures by men engaged in this service lias been 
arranged which will give a comprehensive view of the problems and work of 
this department. Each student will be expected to teach one or more evening 
classes per week in one of the local Associations and to serve in connection 
with the Committees in the educational department. 

Work in pedagogy will be given by Dr. Seerley and a thorough study of 
the social problems confronting the educational department will be made 
under the direction of Mr. Burr. A complete study of methods, including the 
library, the literary society and educational classes, will be given by 
Mr. Bowne. 



27 



PHYSICAL COURSE. 

Director of Physical Course, Dr. Luther Gulk k. 

Object. To furnish " normal Christian physical education " to those pre- 
paring to become directors of the physical work of the Young Men's Chris- 
tian Associations, or of colleges. 

The duties of a modern physical director demand that he shall be able to 
make an intelligent examination of the person who comes to him for advice; 
that he shall be able to wisely counsel with him in regard to food, 
clothing, sleep, work, exercise, and, in general, all those topics which are 
related to " living at one's best:" to put men into the condition of highest 
vitality and effectiveness in any line, is his first work. He must take into 
account the intimate relationships existing between body aud mind, and 
must understand their mutual effects. He must know how to prescribe 
exercise for the diseased who are often sent to him by physicians. He must 
be able to make his gymnasium a place of real recreation as well as of 
body building. 

To accomplish these various ends, he must know the body and its laws 
(anatomy, physiology and hygiene). He must have a detailed knowledge 
of the effects of exercise upon the body (physiology of exercise). He must 
know how to get men into the best condition for the performance of any 
physical effort (training). He must be acquainted with the fundamental 
relations existing between a man's reproductive system and his bodily, 
mental and spiritual states (personal purity). He should know what to do 
incase of accidents (first aid to the injured). He must be able to make an 
intelligent examination of the heart, lungs, and other organs (physical 
examination), He must know how to measure and test men, and how to 
study these measurements in groups (anthropometry). He must know 
how to prescribe exercise for those needing remedial gymnastics sent to 
him by physicians (prescription of exercise). He must have at his service 
the experience of those of the past (history, literature, philosophy of physi- 
cal training). He must be perfectly familiar with all the work which he is 
to use or teach (gymnastics, athletics, aquatics, games, sports, etc.). He 
must be familiar with details of the management of the physical department 
of the institution with which he will probably be connected (physical depart- 
ment of a Young Men's Christian Association). 

The aim is to qualify students as teachers of gymnastics, athletics and 
aquatics. A minimum of time will thus be spent in practice of mere feats 
of strength or skill in any of these branches. Emphasis is placed on the 
enthusiastic pushing of those exercises which are of chief value to the 
average man in the associations. Muscular strength and co-ordination are 
to be developed only so far as they increase vitality. 

Every subject throughout the course is studied and practiced from the 
standpoint of its usefulness as a physical or moral agent in the peculiar 
conditions obtaining in the Young Men's Christian Associations. Class 
rather than individual work, accordingly, is emphasized, and the elements 
of recreation and moral discipline are striven for. The work done in the 
associations is rapidly evolving. The aim is to fit the student for the new 
movement rather than for the old. The progression in gymnastics, athlet- 
ics and aquatics will be as rapid as is consistent with thoroughness. The 
course continues for the physical course students during all three years. 
The secretarial men will have the first six terms. 



28 



The fall course in athletics will consist of events which can be done in 
any level field with little expense for the preparation of the grounds. 
It is believed many associations refrain from taking up athletics because 
they do not know of the excellent sports which require little apparatus. 

This course will include field evolution with calisthenics, hare and hound 
chases, cross country runs, foot ball, minton and field hockey. 

The spring athletic course will take up track and field events. Each student 
will be taught the standard events and the best methods of coaching for each. 

The track events which are emphasized are the 100-yards dash, 220, 440, 880» 
the mile run and hurdling. The field events are pole vaulting, high jumping, 
broad jumping, shot putting, and hammer throwing. Instruction is given 
during the spring in base ball and golf. 

Physical instruction indoors progresses along the following lines: Class 
evolutions, calisthenics, games, apparatus exercises, and indoor athletics. 

In class evolutions, the marching system by Dr. A. T. Halsted will form 
the basis for all work. 

Calisthenics will be taught, first, by giving the principal positions derived 
from the fundamental standing position and, second, by standard drills with 
the dumb-bells, wands, bar bells, and Indian clubs. 

Games. Basket ball and volley ball receive due attention, also such gym- 
nastic games as circle ball, three-deep, hand wrestling, Indian wrestling, etc. 

Apparatus exercises. Instruction is given on the horizontal bar, parallel 
bars, German horse, Swedish bom, traveling rings, and pulley weights. 

Location. There is no part of the country where athletics are more fos- 
tered, where the college athletic teams are better trained, or where the local 
Young Men's Christian Associations are more vigorous in their physical work 
than in the associations and colleges of New England. 

The students visit the majority of the following named first-class gymna- 
siums during their course: The Association Gymnasiums at Worcester, Bos- 
ton, Cambridge, Holyoke, Hartford, New York, — 23d Street, Harlem, Brooklyn. 
College Gymnasiums — Harvard, Amherst, Yale, Columbia. Athletic 
Clubs — Boston Athletic Club, New York Athletic Club. Normal Schools 
of Gymnastics — Boston Normal, Baron Posse, Harvard, Mary Allen, Y. W. 
C. A., Dr. Anderson. 

From nowhere else in the country could this valuable experience be gained 
with so little expenditure of time and money. 

The fine building and gymnasium of the local Association afford illustra- 
tion of a model work. 

The location of the School upon Massasoit Lake furnishes an excellent 
opportunity for training in aquatics. The school possesses an excellent fleet of 
boats for this purpose. 

The course in physical training is divided into (1) Theory, and (2) Practice. 

Junior Year. 

(1) Theory. During 1898-99, courses will be offered in physics and chem- 
istry. These subjects will be pursued sufficiently to enable the student to 
understand the mechanics of the body and the chemistry of digestion. 

Anatomy. (Dr. Seerley, three terms, four hours per week.) Gross anatomy 
of the body and its parts. The body as a machine. Microscopic anatomy 
of the organs of the body. Development of the nervous system. 

(2) Practice. (Three terms, two hours per day.) The Junior physical 
work is the same for all students. 



29 



(a) Field. Instruction is given in field athletics, standing broad and 
running high jumps, shot putting, pole vaulting, running, base ball, (batting, 
base running, fielding, and team practice), foot ball (ball passing, instruction 
in different positions, falling on the ball, and team practice), minton, field 
hockey, and cross country running. 

(b) Gymnasium. Instruction is given in plain inarching, special atten- 
tion being paid to the best formation for handling large classes. After a study 
of the typical gymnastic positions in calisthenic exercises, sample drills are 
taught with dumb-bells, heavy Indian clubs, pulley weights and elementary 
exercises on the heavy apparatus. Emphasis is laid on the hygienic work, 
which permits large classes to be handled effectively. Indoor athletics are 
taught during April. 

(c) Aquatics. Swimming and diving are taught. 

Middle Year. 

(1) Theory. (Dr. McCurdy, three terms, five hours per week.) 

(a) Physiology and Physiology of Exercise. The class will pursue a course 
in special physiology based upon the general course of the Junior year (see 
page 21). The study of the last term will include an application of the facts 
which relate especially to physical training, together with experimental work 
upon assigned subjects. Tbe text book for the last term will be the outline 
prepared by the student. " Physiology of Exercise," by Lagrange, and " Physi- 
cal Education," by Treves will be reviewed. 

(b) Genetic Psychology. (One term, five hours per week.) The object of the 
course is to acquaint the student with the general idea of growth and develop- 
ment as applied in a large way to life. The method will involve a large 
amount of reading of the standard books on evolutionary discussion of biologi- 
cal phenomena. 

The relationships between the development of the individual and of the 
race will be shown in connection with each topic. 

(c) History of Physical Training. (Dr. Gulick, three terms, two hours 
per week.) Each student in the physical course will make a study of some 
special subject and will write upon it. Dr. Gulick will give the following 
lectures :

cance. The funeral games over Patroclus; also other references to sport 
found in the Iliad and the Odyssey of Homer. The place of the athletic

and team practice), and golf. Instruction is given in sprinting, middle 
distance running, hop step and jump, broad and high jumping, pole vaulting, 
and hammer throwing. 

(b) Gymnasium. The class continues the practice of marching begun 
in Junior year, supplementing it with fancy marching. The wands and 
Indian clubs receive special attention. Intermediate exercises on the heavy 
apparatus consist of exercises adapted for leaders and classes in the inter- 
mediate grade. The athletic side of gymnastics is pushed, i. e., those 
exercises which require strong legs and trunk rather than those which] demand 
large arms and shoulders. Athletic instruction is given indoors during 
April in starting high jumping, broad jumping, and pole vaulting. 

Senior Year. 

Sociology. (Mr. Burr). Students will take one term of Sociology. (See 
page 25). 

Physical Training Seminar. (Dr. Gulick). Once a month there will be 
held a seminar on advance work in physical lines. At this time there will be 
presented original work done by the faculty, fellows, graduate students, and 
undergraduates, and occasionally by other specialists. The seminar will aim 



31 



to keep informed of all newer lines of work, publications, experiments, and 
the like. It is for all of the students in the physical course — Juniors, Mid- 
dlers, as well as Seniors and graduate students. 

Each Senior student will prepare a thesis upon some topic related to physi- 
cal training. The work shall be done under the direct supervision and 
co-operation of one of the instructors. 

The title of this thesis shall be engrossed upon his diploma, and ranked 
either as satisfactory, worthy of praise, worthy of high praise, or as worthy of 
the highest praise. 

The two higher grades shall be given only for work that is novel as well as 
original. The thesis must be completed before the spring term is begun. 

Philosophy of Exercise. (Dr. Gulick). During the year lectures will be 
given on the topics in the following list: 

The adoption of machinery as affecting the bodily development of the 
race. The progressive urbanization of civilized peoples. Urbanization as 
related to vitality. Specialization as affecting bodily vigor and development. 
The growth of school life as related to health and development. Devices of 
the day for increasing the amount of work an individual can do ; the tele- 
phone, telegraph, stenographer, mail service, steam, etc. The physical 
condition of the young men of the cities. Physical needs as related to stage

hours per week.) During the spring term the following subjects will be

on normal practice. 

A regular part of this year's work consists of normal practice in the Asso- 
ciation gymnasium, and also in managing the sports and games which are 
conducted throughout the year at the School. Each student is required to 
arrange courses for different classes, viz., for boys, young men, business men. 

Students are expected during the course to visit the large gymnasiums of 
either Boston or New York, and that of either Harvard, Yale, or Amherst; 
also to attend each year two conventions, one of the Young Men's Christian 
Association and the other of the American Association for the Advancement 
of Physical Education.

one-half at each payment. Room rent on last Monday in each month. No 
reduction of rent will be made to a student who engages a room and fails to 
appear at the specified time, nor to one who vacates his room less than a month 
before the close of the school. Rent stops only when the room is vacated and 
the key delivered to the janitor. A deposit of fifty cents will be required for 
each key. 

Each student lodging in the Dormitory will care for his own room, which 
must be kept scrupulously clean. He will be expected to provide sheets, pillow 
slips, towels and soap. Beds are all single, three feet in width; pillows, 18x25 
inches. Rooms are liable to inspection.

in every branch of the course, after presenting a thesis, and upon approval 
of the faculty. 

Conditions imposed in any subject must be met during the following term. 



SELF-SUPPORT. 

The institution is unable to offer aid to students. A small loan fund, 
however, has enabled quite a number of students to complete their courses. 
A number find opportunity for work in connection with the buildings. 
Three to four are given teaching as assistants in the gymnasium and shop, 
and a number secure positions in neighboring Associations. 



CONTRIBUTIONS. 

Inquiries concerning the finances will receive prompt attention if addressed 
to L. L. Doggett, President, and remittances may be made payable to his 
order, or to H. H. Bowman, Treasurer. 



3d 



BI-CENTURY CLUB, 

To maintain the School's work on its present plane of efficiency, a yearly 
income of $20,000, aside from tuition fees and room rentals, is required. This 
is divisible into 200 shares of $100 each, and an effort is now being made, with 
the cordial sanction and co-operation of the Trustees, to place these shares in 
the form of annual subscriptions of $100 each. 

To place all of these for this year, and perhaps the next few years, may make 
it necessary to ask some friends to take from two to five shares or even more ; 
but the aim is to increase the number of shareholders, as speedily as possible, 
to 200, and so form a Bi-Century Club of $100 supporters. 

An endowment fund of $2,500 serves to place one share permanently, and 
so far three have been thus placed, providing the school with $300 annually 
towards its current expense fund. 



BEQUEST FOR ENDOWMENT, 

I give and bequeath to the International Young Men's Christian Associa- 
tion Training School, Springfield, Mass., the sum of 

to be safely invested by them and called the 

Fund. The interest of this fund to be applied to the use of the School.* 



JUBILEE ENDOWMENT FUND. 

By vote of the Trustees, June 9, 1899, a movement was inaugurated to 
secure a $100,000 Jubilee Endowment Fund to commemorate the Jubilee of 
the American work which will occur in 1901. For this purpose $10,000 has 
already been placed in the hands of the trustees by a friend of the Institution. 



PERPETUAL LOAN FUND. 

For the purpose of founding a perpetual loan fund in the International 
Young Men's Christian Association Training School, Springfield, Mass. [or 
any of its departments, if so stated], I hereby give the sum of five thousand 
dollars — or its equivalent in good securities at cash value — to be safely 
invested by them, the income to be loaned toward the education of students 
who have already shown ability in the School. 

THE ASSOCIATION OUTLOOK AND TRAINING SCHOOL NOTES. 

This publication aims to represent the work of the School. It records 
what is going on among the students and faculty. It publishes the original 
work which is being done by students and faculty. Problems of interest 
and importance among the associations upon which there may be light 
thrown from the educational standpoint are discussed here. The general 
design of the paper is to keep all those who are interested in touch with the 



*Or the testator may specify towards the current expenses; or towards the support of a 
chair of instruction in the General Course, or in any of the departments; or to be used as a 
loan towards the education of students who have shown ability in any of the departments. 



School, and to furnish such a discussion of association events, outlook, policy 
and problems, as would naturally come from an educational center. The 
subscription price is $1.00. The faculty co-operate in its maintenance, but 
the special editorial responsibility has been placed upon Dr. Luther Gulick. 



THE STUDENT ASSOCIATION. 

The Student Association was organized October 17, 189(3. It has in view 
the following purposes : (1) To promote the spiritual growth of the 
students. (2) To encourage a spirit of Christian fellowship. (3) To provide 
opportunity for definite Christian work throughout the city and neighboring 
towns. (4) to establish closer relation with the Inter-Collegiate movement. 
The work of the Association may be best described through its regular 
committees : 

The Executive Committee is made up of the general officers of the Asso- 
ciation, and with the Finance Committee, looks after the business interests 
of the Association. 

The Committee on Religious Meetings has charge of the devotional services 
of the Association, and seeks to stimulate the adoption of systematic methods 
of devotional Bible study. 

The Missionary Committee seeks through study of missionary literature, 
and by special work, to promote interest in the Home and Foreign Missions, 
and to encourage systematic giving. 

The Social and Membership Committee seeks to interest new students in 
the Association, and tries in every way to serve them both before and after 
their arrival. Socials are frequently given during the year. 

The Physical Department Committee co-operates with the faculty in 
making successful the public gymnastic and athletic events of the School. 
It aims to encourage a spirit of school loyalty, and endeavors to develop a 
sentiment for "clean sport" among organizations with whom the School 
competes. 

The Inter-Collegiate Committee is engaged in establishing helpful relations 
with the colleges and preparatory schools of the neighborhood. 

The Outside Work Committee endeavors to provide for the students oppor- 
tunities for definite aggressive Christian work, and to enable the students to 
render more efficient service in the local Christian institutions.' Opportunities 
for service are opened in connection with neighboring Young Men's Christian 
Associations, local churches and Christian societies, conducting of Bible 
classes, gospel meetings, and deputation days. 

The membership fee in the Student Association is two dollars per year. 
Additional expenses are met by subscriptions from friends of the students. 

The president of the Association, Mr. M. W. Crawford, would be glad to 
correspond with prospective students who may desire information of any kind.
